New UPS range for the SME

June 2016 Products & Solutions

Schneider Electric has announced the expansion of its Galaxy 300 uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system, which now includes 60 kVA and 80 kVA models. Ideal for small and medium businesses, commercial buildings and technical facilities with small server rooms, the Galaxy 300 60 kVA and 80 kVA UPS systems provide effective and reliable three-phase power protection to prevent downtime and data loss for mission critical applications in a robust, simple-to-install and cost-effective configuration.

The new UPS systems also enable users to lower operational and cooling costs with power efficiency and total harmonic distortion of current at less than 3,5% with full load.

To ensure uptime and availability, the Galaxy 300 10 to 80 kVA portfolio allows for standard installation of one or two independent power sources, and utilises an online double conversion topology to provide true isolation between input and output with zero transfer time.

A built-in 100% rated bypass static switch prevents interruption by allowing load transfer to utility power during heavy overloads. Connected equipment can be powered with two UPSs united in parallel to increase system redundancy. In addition, the system provides users with options for an integrated battery backup with up to 10 minutes of runtime, or a robust charger for external batteries on rack or in external cabinets that provides run times of up to four hours.

Designed for ease-of-use, users are able to monitor and manage power requirements locally and remotely through a simple web/ simple network management protocol interface. The simple-to-read and highly graphical user interface provides mimic diagrams, audible alarms and is available in 18 languages.

The Galaxy 300 10 to 80 kVA UPS systems are also equipped with several features that enable simple installation as well as tools to streamline compliance, maintenance and serviceability over the system’s service life. An accessible maintenance bypass allows for complete isolation of each part of the system without power interruption, and the system features push-open doors and slide out boards for effortless maintenance in confined spaces. For timesaving installation, the compact wide or narrow tower configurations can easily be rolled into new or existing facilities, and all wiring connections are easily identifiable. Step-by-step guidance and intuitive menu screens enable fast setup and system navigation.

Additional features of the systems include:

• A dual mains input that allows for stand installation of one or two independent power sources.

• A power factor corrected input that prevents the need for oversizing cables, circuit breakers and generators.

• Runtime options for UPS systems with integrated and external batteries.

• Availability of three to three and three to single phase power configurations for convenient power distribution.

• Restriction of the use of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliant.
